CALGARY - Two workers have been injured at a home construction site in Calgary.

One of the workers fell about 4-1/2 metres and was rescued by firefighters before being handed over to EMS personnel.

Fire crews have secured the site because it is no longer considered safe.

Occupational Health and Safety has been called in.
